20 SITES TO FIND FREE & FEMININE STOCK PHOTOS

free feminine stock photosBranding is so important when building a blog. Whether it’s your site’s theme, your Instagram feed or pins for your Pinterest account, you want everything to represent you! You only get one chance to make a great first impression.

When considering your brand’s aesthetic definitely think about what your core customer looks like, where do they like hang out, shop, eat etc. When building this site I knew I wanted to appeal to women of all races across the world so I wanted the site, and my social sites, to have a feminine touch. She’s a BOSS but not afraid to be girly!

So, with that said I constantly need to find stock photos that look professional and appeal to my predominantly female readers and followers. I did take a few photos myself, or had friends take some of me (see the main photo), but for the most part I’ve found some great FREE resources. Between these 20 sites there’s over 500 stock photos you can access now!

If you’re a blogger, vlogger, creative entrepreneur or freelancer, these 20 resources are FREE and have plenty of free feminine stock photos to pick from.

If you’re still on the fence about starting a blog then you’ve come to the right place. Read my quick and easy post on how to start a lifestyle, fashion, beauty, hair or ANY blog here.
